"On The Steeple With The Shakes (x-mas Tigers)" as written by Temistoclas Hugo Rutili and Tim Hurley....
yellow lions and winter sleep
when the power lines are down for days straight
your filthy eyes and sugar mouth
left on the steeple with the shakes

sea glass wheels
you folded under
mercury slides along the tiles
stepford wives and christmas tigers (2x)

frozen ladders on the phone
sets you on the other shore
with silverfish along the tiles
left on the steeple with the shakes

sea glass wheels
you folded under
mercury slides along the tiles
stepford wives and christmas tigers (2x)

    General CommentIf you like Ugly Casanova, Modest Mouse, Holopaw and the rest you should love Califone. Very slow music and bizzare instruments at times. The pauses in the music become as important as the music itself and the lyrics dont do Califone justice --
    Take it all in and it is great
